    11 Things I Always Have In My Art Studio

    Every artist is different when it comes to their studio essentials.

    Introducing The Untamed Series

    “It looks like the beginning of the world, somehow: the sea looks older than in other places, the hills and rocks strange, and formed differently from other rocks and hills…The hill-tops are shattered into a thousand cragged fantastical shapes.

    A Life Less Ordinary: Suzanne Valadon

    I paint with the stubbornness I need for living, and I’ve found that all painters who love their art do the same. Suzanne Valadon It’s rare (ok, not that rare) that a painting stops me in my steps. But occasionally a painting really does STOP me. Many years ago, a trip to Paris, wandering the…
